Who We Are
Carolina Friends School staff members demonstrate an understanding of and strong commitment to Quaker philosophy and values and the School’s mission, a desire for continuous professional growth, and the ability to work with integrity, energy, courage, creativity, resilience, flexibility, and a sense of humor. State teacher certification or licensure is not required for employment.
Our staff hail from Barbados, Brazil, England, Egypt, Ireland, Liberia, Perú, and throughout the United States. They have an average of over 17 years of teaching experience, and their tenure at the School ranges from a matter of months to over 40 years! Over half have earned advanced degrees.
Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
We actively seek to create a staff community that reflects diversity of race, ethnicity, family structure, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, physical ability, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic background.
Carolina Friends School actively strives to be a community of staff, students, and families of diverse backgrounds. CFS does not discriminate based on age, race, color, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, socio-economic background, family structure, national or ethnic origin, genetic information, or military service in the administration of its policies and program.
We are an equal opportunity employer in both policy and practice.
